Variety reports that Ford and Seacrest, who have been collaborating since the earliest days of American Idol, are extending their partnership another year more. With the conclusion of the talent-search show on the horizon, this means that Seacrest could carry this relationship over into any subsequent roles he takes.

Seacrest is the current face of the annual ABC New Year’s Eve celebration, and he is also endorsed by Coca-Cola. How positively American!

“Ryan has become a great ambassador to Ford throughout our 15-year relationship, and we are thrilled to continue working together,” said Ray Day, group vice president of communications for Ford Motor Co., in a prepared statement. “Ryan’s insights and passion for innovation align well with the Ford brand. We’re looking forward to shaping the future together.”
